Primal Reflex Release Technique, PRRT is one of the latest treatments that relieves pain and helps the body to heal itself in a natural way. The TRU Method team uses PRRT after a complete evaluation has been given. During the evaluation, it is not uncommon to find areas of the body that contribute to the chief complaint. Addressing these issues with PRRT is a gentle way to use the body’s own muscles and reflexes to eliminate spasms and pain.
About 12 years ago, John Iams discovered that our primal reflexes are hardwired into our nervous system for the preservation and sustainability of life. These reflexes include the startle reflex, the withdrawal reflex, and the protective joint reflex. Together, they are the forefront of all sustained painful conditions and are linked to the “fight or flight” response. When a person is experiencing pain, or is startled, these reflexes are called upon to protect the body. Iams also found that when this happens, the body overstimulates itself therefore creating the primal reflexes to patterns of pain that can be reproduced, duplicated and maintained. PRRT is a great solution to this problem as it facilitates a “neural reboot”, which essentially resets neural control in order to release muscular and joint restrictions.
